House Republicans Set To Take On Emperor Obama’s ‘Pen And Phone’

Based on the context of emails from GOP leadership, House Republicans are poised to launch an offensive against President Barack Obama’s regulatory-laden imperial Presidency in coming weeks.

House Majority leader Eric Cantor recently sent an email to his GOP colleagues calling on the lawmakers to fight to

“restore the balance of power created by our Founders.”

“President Obama has provided new clarity as to what constitutes an imperial presidency,” Cantor wrote.

“Declaring that he has a ‘pen and a phone,’ he has acted to effectively rewrite the laws of the United States.”

Cantor told the lawmakers that the House GOP leadership’s main focus over the course of the next three weeks will be undoing Obama’s “excessive and burdensome” regulations, which, according to studies cited by the lawmaker, cost small businesses more than $10,000 per employee and in excess of $7000 per employee for larger firms.

“The cost of excessive and burdensome Washington regulations means fewer jobs and reduced salaries for those with a job,” Cantor wrote.

The Hill offers a rundown of three anti-regulation bills set to hit the House floor next week:

Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s (R-Va.) Regulatory Accountability Act topped Cantor’s list, because it would require federal agencies to write regulations that have the smallest economic impact on businesses.

Cantor also mentioned the ALERT Act, introduced by Rep. George Holding (R-N.C.), which he says would require federal agencies to provide timely information about the status and cost of new regulations it is considering.

This would prevent “regulators from hiding the ball,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Sunshine for Regulatory Decrees and Settlements Act, introduced by Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), fights what Cantor calls an “abusive” practice where federal agencies will settle lawsuits with liberal groups by agreeing to impose stricter regulations on businesses.

The House GOP also plans to introduce a bill to roll back a portion of Obamacare that requires companies with 50 or more employees to provide healthcare coverage to those working at least 30 hours each week.

“Our plan is to reduce the middle-class squeeze; create an environment for economic growth and job creation; reform our health-care system to one of patient-centered care and lowers costs; and ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to get ahead by accessing a quality education,” Cantor wrote.

It's the hearts and minds of the independent/swing voters that are most important now. Only by removing the Democrats from power will there ever be any real HOPE for CHANGE.
